President Donald Trump sometimes seems to have not got over his defeat of Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016. He wants to do it again. “I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try to steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren,” he tweeted Tuesday, referencing both his habitual insult for Clinton and a new nickname for rising Democratic 2020 candidate Warren.
Clinton is not anywhere near the current field vying to take on Trump in next year’s election. But she played along Tuesday, firing back on Twitter: “Don’t tempt me. Do your job.” Meanwhile, Warren has squeezed ahead of long-time front-runner Joe Biden for the first time, according to compiled polls released Tuesday. The RealClearPolitics poll average put Warren on 26.6 percent and Biden on 26.4 percent in the Democratic primary contest. Warren, 70, a progressive senator from Massachusetts, has campaigned strongly throughout the summer, while centrist former vice president Joe Biden, 76, has been hit by health concerns and gaffes, including his son’s involvement in a Ukraine company which eventually sparked an impeachment probe against Trump.
